well i'm not a beach person you know that's for certain i'd rather be up a mountain but I've got a runny nose and I can't feel my toes when its wintry outside and you long for the tide and the summer of your lifetime to feel the sun on your hair and the wind on your toes and the sand in your ears and the sea in your shoes sing us a seaside song etc
2.
well there's an accepted convention the laboratory technicians keep religiously when the specimens are labelled for identification we stick them on vertically but there's one notable exception I've decided needs correction immediately and I'm trying to convince the population they're neater horizontally I'm begging you please I'm almost on my knees won't you follow my lead on this If you provide and explanation I'll accept the implication and change my ways but only if it's rational and actually beneficial, not traditional there's no escape from the psychology that its absolutely gotta be a certain way and although its parasitology it doesn't affect the microscopy in any way so I'm begging you please I'm almost on my knees won't you follow my lead on this

Saw You Am I it was '96 the university full of kids and Mr Rogers showed me how he could dance up on the stage it looked quite fun and when the crowd was jumping i also jumped so i could see over their heads but as my glasses flew down towards the floor i knew my dancing days were done don't ask me to dance cos there's no chance i'd walk across that floor just to get to the door i've tried it before but i'll try no more before they begun my dancing days were done
4.
Burkholderia 02:40
I did not catch the Burkholderia Oh yes it was a pseudomallei they gave me a thermometer and said write down your temperature I took trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole

Toronto song 03:18
My squirrel is so giddy and she doesn't know the city like the back of her hand a stranger in this land it is stranger than I expected but it is apparent we will be good friends if some time we spend we enjoy holding hands in the snow going round her house we enjoy throwing sticks on the ground in a funny way
7.
Cat food etc 02:19
Scruffles tells me its dinner time but she won't get her cat food till twelve o'clock impatience and persistence is rewarded with some tasty cat treats cat food costs 79c a tin these days well I can't complain Helen made her a cardboard thing its her favourite surface on which to think In the morning I'll wake up and eat my porridge and milo too go to work and eat my can of fish, a sandwich and banana too

when you're sad you feel emotional when you're glad you don't feel emotional
9.
We've been together so long At the start we were strong You said I was the one Well I'm still here oh I haven't gone So lets make love happen... Maybe we let things go wrong baby for way for too long But chu know love it don't come It don't come unless it gets done So lets make love happen... And when you lean across that desk I still get that feeling deep down in my chest You know I just can't resist Though we've had our problems There's none we can't fix We can't fail...... So lets make love happen
